'm chris jansing. developing news from the white house. in 45 minutes we are expecting president obama to talk about the $85 billion in the harsh automatic budget cuts known as the sequester. he'll be in the south court auditorium of the white house with a group of first responders. those are the folks whose jobs are on the line if the president and congress don't reach a deal. >>> time is running out. the cuts would go into effect march 1st and congress in recess this week, it gives them five days to work out a deal once they get back. right now, democrats and republicans aren't even talking to each other about how to solve this sequester problem. >> the president gave a speech showing that he'd like to replace it but he hasn't put hi details out there. that's why i conclude it's going to take place. >> democrats have the high ground both substantively and politically and we will win on this issue. i believe just like on the fiscal cliff, republicans will come on board. >> the president promised it wouldn't happen. he's the commander in chief and on his watch, we're going to begin to

"the post" cites sources familiar with the investigation says new evidence has been found to support the claims so far. >>> and president obama in his weekly address today told the american public that cuts in federal programs will hurt the middle class. >> i disagree with republicans who think we should do that by making even bigger cuts to things like education and job training, or medicare, and social security benefits. that would force our senior citizens and working families to bear the burden of deficit reduction while the wealt
's team up with obama, let's give into obama, let's make concessions to obama. it's let's fight obama. so the more this looks like a fight between rubio and obama, where obama makes a totally unreasonable demand and rubio backs away and maybe come back together in a week or few weeks, maybe there is a long-term dance playing out here like that. >> steve, i think that would be the more benign way of looking at it. it's probably giving too much credit to think they actually skeemd it out that way. but let's look at this proposal. you've got these eight senators on board with here. already you've got all kinds of griping from house republicans about that proposal. which would tend to pull it more to the right. so if you're looking at it in that sort of mac vil anyway, yes, some sense in having the democrats but pull it left so we can all fight it out and wind up exactly where that compromise is in the first place. because that's the only way you're going to get this sort of thing done, is by having everybody on board like that. >> dana, let's go back to your first point of this potentially b
about the automatic cuts. from house majority leader eric cantor, quote, president obama has said that unless he gets a second tax hike he will be forced to let criminals loose on the streets. the meat at your grocery store won't be inspected and emergency responders will be unable to do their jobs. these are false choices. let's bring in molly ball, national political reporter, democratic strategist kiss kofonis and jonathan karabel. chris, your response to cantor, that criminals will be on the loose, meat at your grocery store won't be inspected. i don't think it can get to the shelf if it's not inspected and emergency responders won't be able to do their job and i assume if you called 911 someone may not be on the other end of the line to help you. >> well, i think congressman cantor and the republicans are playing a dangerous game of chicken. what they're basically counting on is sequester goes in to effect and the american people, the world does not end. there's truth to that. it doesn't all happen on one day. they will be felt over coming days and weeks and months but when y
. it is groundhog day. let's get to what's happening out there right now. president obama shifting his focus back to the economy. a day after the dow closed above the 14,000 mark for the first time since before the financial crisis. >> we are poised to grow in 2013. and the real signs of progress. home prices are starting to climb again. car sales are at a five-year high. manufacturing is roaring back. our businesses created 2.2 million jobs last year. and we just learned that our economy created more jobs over the last few months than economists originally thought. >> now, former senator scott brown says he will not run on a special senate election in massachusetts. it's a setback. republicans who hope to win the seat vacated by secretary of state john kerry. brown lost hre-election bid to elizabeth warren in november. for more on the response to the milestone week to the dow, let's go to kristen welker at the white house for us. good saturday morning to you. what is the take on the latest economic news, after the rocky start with the negative gdp number? >> good morning, alex. a real mixed bag
. >>> immigration reform goes front and center in washington today. president obama holds eye level talks. house members will tackle the issue on capitol hill. tracie potts joins us with a preview of both. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. let's start with the white house. today president obama sits down with civic groups and labor leaders and then separately with business leaders. they're talking about the economy and deficit reduction. but also in the context of how does immigration affect that? the president said he wants to do something about the 11 million people who are living and working in this country and have been doing so for years illegally. but republicans here, especially conservatives on the house side, want to make sure border protection comes first. janet napolitano is touring the border right now and says we can secure it but we can't completely shut it down because that would hinder trade and commerce. also today the house judiciary committee meeting. they take a look at what might be the best solution here. there's a group of democrats and republicans working behind th
in common. republicans control the states legislatures and governor's mansions and president obama won the last two elections in those states. the scheme seemed to have crashed before they even began in most of those states. in florida, for example, top republicans have publicly backed away. in virginia a bill in the state senate was killed in committee. in ohio the republican governor indicated he was opposed. it's the same in michigan and wisconsin where even paul ryan recently said he was against the change. that leaves just one state for now, pennsylvania. and republicans there seem intent on going ahead. the senate majority leader says he will introduce legislation this month to change how the state's electoral votes are awarded. that woot mean instead of obama winning all of the state's 20 electoral votes, veld gotten only 12. it's another example of republicans trying to fight a demographic war that's going against them. will this latest scheme succeed? jim burn is the chairman of the democratic party of pennsylvania and eugene robinson is a columnist for "the washington post" a
obama like you've never seen him before. white house press secretary jay carney tweeted this picture a short time ago. it's of the president who is shooting at clay targets. it was taken august 4th of 2012 on the range at camp david. the president had mentioned his skeat shooting exploits in an interview with the new republic last week. the pick toured release comes just ahead of the president's visit to minneapolis monday where he is going to promote his gun control proposals. new today president obama says 2013 can be a year of solid economic growth but only if washington gets out of the way. >> we are poised to grow in 2013. and there are real signs of progress. home prices are starting to climb again. car sales are at a five-year high. manufacturing is roaring back. our business has created 2.2 million jobs last year. and we just learned that our economy created more jobs over the last few months than economists originally thought. >> hey, guys, holding back on front page politics and back to alabama now where there's a news conference on that hostage situation. let's take a list
policies of the obama administration, not just the secretive drone strike but using the right to use it against american citizens. this came up in 2007 when a drone strike killed awlaki and kahne, both u.s. citizens and neither charged with a crime. and we have extra judicial killings by the u.s. government without any judicial review and any right of the citizen to argue his or her case in court. these are very sticky issues. the legal basis for these strikes has been kept a secret by the obama administration. you may remember we had huge fights back in the bush era about the legal memos for enhanced interrogation tactics, the so-called torture memos. ultimately they became public. this is viewed by some as an analogy for that, secret memos upon which huge u.s. government policies, with grave consequences are being made. we got a copy of this memo, which is not the olc memo, the office of legal council memo but a white paper, 16 page white paper that mirrors and tracks it and gives us much more detail about what the legal basis for these strikes are. >> you draw a great analogy with
2014 but, this is a big but, a lower deficit, the smallest since president obama's been in office, well under $1 trillion. they attribute that to an improving economy and to the fiscal cliff deal. veronica. >> tracie potts, thank you. >>> a major decision expected from the boy scouts of america. national board members set to vote on whether to lift the decade long ban on guy leaders and scouts. it comes after a meeting at the texas headquarters. it is a controversial issue from both sides and putting one of the largest youth organizations under a microscope. scouting should be open to everyone. texas governor rick perry expressed the opposite opinion. board members choose to scrap the policy, local scout units will be able to decide for themselves on whether or not to admit gays to the rankings. >>> on the heels of the boy scouts decision, the pentagon is announcing a policy shift for guy service members and partners. leon panetta expected to extend benefits to partners of personnel. it remains doubtful that medical, down theal and housing allowances are offered under the new proposal.
president obama not having a plan to replace sequester? >> well, i can only speculate about what brooks and others are thinking. but i would think in all likelihood, there is a forced equivalence between left and right and democrats and republicans, it doesn't really exist. i think for many pundits who are so eager to avoid any sense of bias or any sense of maybe one side is more responsible for problems than the other, that they have to say that both sides are always to blame, regardless of the facts, regardless of the circumstances. we see pieces like the one we saw in "the new york times" today where the president is getting blamed even though he is not ultimately responsible and hasn't done any of the things he is accused of doing. as a consequence you hear a lot of pundits saying things like the deficit is getting worse when it's getting better. that spending is up when it's down. all tease things that are completely detached from reality. it's very frustrating to watch. >> well, the budget control act, the president did sign it. but a bunch of republicans voted for it to get it to
. there was a big stink made about the white house press corps story or nonstory. president obama played golf with tiger woods in florida last weekend. the white house press corps was denied access to this moment in the president's second term. fox news chief white house correspondent ed henry, who's the president of the white house correspondents association released a statement to politico that underscored the press corps's complaint. i can say a broad cross section of our members from print, radio, online and tv have expressed extreme frustration to me about having no access to the president of the united states this entire weekend. there is a very simple but important principle we will continue to fight for today, transparency. they complained about the president being a manipulator of the press and guilty of shutting them out. with more technology and fewer resources the many media companies, the balance of power between the white house and the press has tipds unmistakably toward the government. it's a dangerous development that they have exploited cleverly and ruthlessly. it seems to me
to share with you and then i will direct some questions your way. you have said that president obama believes that done carefully, deliberately, and responsibly we can be more transparent and still ensure our nation's security. i absolutely agree. the american people have the right to know what their government does on their behalf consistent with our national security, the presunks mption o transparency should be the rule. when we on the committee push hard for access to the legal analysis justifying the authority of the executive branch to lethally target americans using drones, for instance, it erodes the government's credibility to the american people. i want to tell you i'm grateful to the president for allowing members of this committee to briefly view some of the legal opinions on targeting american citizens. this is an important first step, but i want to tell you i think there's much more to be done in that regard, and you have heard that from my colleagues here today. i have long believed that our government also has an obligation to the american people to face its mistakes
obama's inauguration events in washington last week. a few years ago she took part in a public service video urging teens to avoid gang violence. >> hi, this commercial is informational for you and your future children. so many children are fearing gangs and it's your job as students to say no to gangs and say yes to a future. joining a gang is not a part of your future. >> let the message continue to spread. >>> a second newspaper says it was attacked by chinese hackers following a disclosure from the "new york times" which disclosed that the computers were i will filtrated. pete williams reports. >> reporter: "the new york times" says hackers have been attacking its computer system for the past four months, even managing to get pass words for individual reporters. the paper says the own security experts and the fbi traced the intrusions to hackers in china who it says were employing techniques associated in the past with hackers from the chinese military. another newspaper, "the wall street journal" says it, too, was hit by chinese hackers who wanted to monitor the china reporting. n
many i doing? the campaign. he was so controversial. and then, of course, when barack obama was running, he was very not just controversial, but he went over, some said, over the edge and became really alienated from a lot of the leaders. there's no denying the force that he was in new york city. and the remarkable character that he was. >> absolutely. >> all those years. >> he was, donny, the face of new york for so long. >> he is. i grew up in the city. and i love him. and i actually think his way was an early, early precursor to probably the most, if not hillary clinton, loved politician today, chris christie, straight talking, who he is, the embodiment of a region, unapologetically, and obviously stylistically very different but kind of built from the same mold. he was one of the greatest. >> he was another of the generation of these guys, these leaders, that we're losing now to who served in world war ii, was drafted in 1943, landed on a beach in france in 1944, you know, by the time he was 20 something years old and then went on to do all these great things. and he was still, unti
up in new york. tonight president obama will deliver his state of the union and we'll have full coverage, of course, of that tonight. but first, there's breaking news out in southern california where police may be closing in on christopher dorner, that fugitive ex-los angeles cop sought in three killings. nbc's john yang is in our los angeles bureau, but let's go to former fbi profiler clint van zandt who has been watching this. he's on the phone. clint, what are we looking at here? it seems the evidence we have is he broke into a house in the san bernardino mountains, tied up two of the people who lived there, stole their pickup truck and is now trying to get away from police. >> yeah. it may be that's exactly the case. realize, chris, that's one of the scenarios that law enforcement had to the consider. as you know, up in those mountains where they've conducted this massive manhunt, there are literally hundreds of private homes and cottages, some that are occupied and some that aren't. police believe they had done a house-by-house search, but somehow in one of those residences
at the president's efforts in that regard. everyone who watches will see and hear president obama in his reach for history. will he move mightily on immigration and gun safety? will he propose actions to chop down the country's long lingering high unemployment rates. will he lead the country to change b? will he use the bully pulpit to pressure to take on the challenges that lie tonight in the state of the union? howard fine man is director for "the huffington post" and msnbc analyst. and alex wagner. howard, you first. then t i'd like to know your sense of the way i gauged it. is tonight going to show the depth he'll go to penetrate history? >> i think so, chris. i think he is going to try hard. because as he himself has said repeatedly and his aides are saying today, doing something to improve the lot and he lives of middle class americans, the core and anchor is essential for both the country and the president's record. you're going to hear a lot of that tonight. i think he's going to make the case and make the claim. progressives are going to say he hasn't gone far enough. but this is the
% of the voters elected barack obama. 49% of us are not that stupid. >> i think the republicans have betrayed their own values. >> the republicans have great messages, but there is a news media in this country that simply is on the president's side. >> the people who we need to reach are the people who aren't paying attention. >> that's what the economy said, herman. >> those that are wrong economists. >> please be reasonable. >> it makes me ashamed. >> vent your anger but be alone when you do it. ♪ have you heard about the new dance criaze ♪ li . >> it is seven days to austerity, to a potential economic apock lips when $85 billion will be slashed from the federal government and eventually it will affect all of us from the food we eat to the flights we take to the nation's national security. all of it could come apart unless republicans find a way to compromise on sequestration. it's a message the president reiterated this afternoon while meeting with japan's prime minister. >> this should be a no-brainer, and let me just point out that the overall impact to the economy will be to slow do
with who left the u.s. military because they converted and were treated differently. >> obama administration has doubled the no-fly list we should note. this came from an ap report. to about 21,000 names. secret lists of suspected terrorist whose are banned from flying to or within the united states. the flood of new names began after the failed christmas 2009 bombing of a detroit-bound jetliner. the government lowered the standard for putting people on the list. james, we're talking about what's outrageous about this. i can absolutely 1,000% understand that exact reasoning. you think how the heck did we let this guy get on a plane and so people say let's err on the side of caution, let's err on making the list bigger than smaller and the worst that happens some people get deprived of their ability to fly. what's wrong with that logic? >> it's not erring on the side of caution this is err on the scale of fear. we're into like five digits. this is something that's happening with the drug war, something that's happening with no-fly lists, something happening with kill lists and
